The Lookout Holiday Park
This is a low key, family orientated, privately owned park at the edge of the Purbeck Hills. The pitches are on two fields and most have 10amp electric hook-up with mains water taps not too far from most of them. No gazebos are allowed and it’s a dog free park. There are a few hard standing pitches most of which were occupied by seasonal caravans when we visited. It’s not what you would call a well manicured park but the staff were friendly, knowledgeable and the facilities block was cleaned to a high standard. Facilities include a play area, games room and a well stocked shop. There is a bus stop right outside the park with buses to Swanage, Poole and as far as Exeter. There is no dedicated motorhome service point. If you are a light sleeper, ask for a pitch away from the road noise.
From £16 per night in low season for outfit, awning, mains hook-up and maximum of six people. Seasonal pitches from March to October are available. Please check for up to date information before booking.
Eat and drink
You’ll find food for all tastes at Wareham which you can walk to, drive or take the bus.
